Paris Called

London called, Paris called and now Lucerne is about to call. My travel buddy and I had a a great time in London but I was too busy to blog. We have now finished day 2 of our tour. Day 1 was our drive to Paris. We took a ferry to France and then drove to Paris. We met our tour mates during the drive to Paris. We arrived around supper time. After supper we did a night time tour of Paris. Our tour guide provided great information on the city. The tour ended at the Eiffel Tour. We were lucky enough to have backstage passes to the Eiffel Tower so we didn't have to wait in line to get in. We took an elevator to the second floor before going on up to the top. The view of the city was breath taking. The Eiffel Tower just blew me a way. It was a great experience. Today we went into the city with our tour group to tour a perfumery before getting to explore the city on our own. My friend and I had a great time walking the streets of Paris. We went to the Louvre before strolling along the river Seine. At lunch time I tried chocolate crepes for the first time. They weren't the greatest but it was an experience not to miss. We then went to the Notre Dame before returning back to our hotel on the metro to get ready to go to the cabaret in Montmarte with our tour group. The show was magnificent. It was well worthy the euros spent on it. Tomorrow we board the coach for a long drive to Lucerne. I will end this now as my bed is calling me to go to sleep in preparation for tomorrow's journey.
